Thank you to all of the Strings & Sol guests that brought school supplies, gardening supplies, & medical supplies for the Positive Legacy donation drive. All of the donations were brought to the local high school during the day of service and donated to the facility there.
Strings & Sol guests were invited to join Positive Legacy for the kick-off the Urban Garden Initiative in Puerto Morelos during Strings & Sol. The day of service took place at the local high school where guests and students were able to get their hands dirty building garden beds, bagging healthy soil to use for the gardens, painting signs for the garden, and planting seeds with the students. Tim Carbone was even the foreman on one of the projects! After the hard work was done for the day everyone relaxed to the sounds of some local music with special guests Tim Carbone & Andy Goessling from Railroad Earth. There was a locally catered lunch and activities with the kids featuring The Big Fun Circus. Positive Legacy was able to grant Puerto Morelos $24,000 for their Urban Garden Initiative thanks to music fans like you! We are all looking forward to seeing how our legacy continues through the Urban Garden Initiative and hope to see the gardens multiplying throughout the community. Thanks to all of you who joined the day of service!
100% of proceeds from the Positive Legacy auctions go directly towards projects such as the Urban Garden Initiative in Puerto Morelos. Positive Legacy’s humanitarian and environmental projects are mostly funded from these charity auction proceeds. The Positive Legacy Charity Auction during Strings & Sol was a huge success; raising just over $16,000! Thanks to all of the guests that came out to bid on the unique items from Strings & Sol artists. Special thanks goes to all of the bands that contributed to the auction and also Dave Vann and Josh Timmermans for providing wonderful photography for the auction.
Positive Legacy and Trees, Water & People once again were able to make it easy to travel responsibly, by offering an offsetting of the travel emissions for travel to Mexico for Strings & Sol. Offset donations supported a community tree nursery that is producing 10,000 trees a year for rural communities on the north coast of Haiti, providing fruit, improved soil quality, timber and the sequestration of thousands of tons of carbon dioxide emissions over their lifetimes.
